Plates Full
For the second straight year, outpatient surgery leaders were forced to work in extremely difficult conditions. Not only did you continue to fight the scourge of COVID-19 by protecting yourselves, your staffs and your patients, but unprecedented staffing shortages have forced some of you to don surgical attire and work in ORs far more than you envisioned.
